    How do I get rid of the overdose?

    your kinda out of luck. sorbate does not dissipate out. could make 3 more batches and blend them. Up side to that is look at all the pee you would have to drink

    Enforcement of 200 gallon rule?

    I have not gone over that amount in years. Only because I have been busy with other project. Think I will be a lot over this year cause its only February and the fermenters have been full sine New Years

    When is wine finished fermenting????

    Yes I rack off the lees, but if it is only a little no. I do use Sparkaloid and Bentonite to help clearing. That way I dont have to rack as much. Every racking you lose winer to the wine gods and they are thirsty bastards

    Coconut wine?

    First squeeze organic coconut milk is sold at most coops. There is a new one in Tacoma that has it. It aint cheap. I pay 3.50 for 12 oz can. I am thinking flacked meat would work better and cost less. Most is sweetened. Now I think I will go have a piece of coconut cream pie

    WineXpert Bulk Aging

    I just age in Corny kegs now. Fill. pressurize with CO2 . Bleed out O2. Never leaks. Don't need to fill air locks. N0 O2 exposure during aging. No light.stack nice in closet. If they fall over, no big deal. If I drop it, no big deal. This is perfect for my needs

    Blackberry cabernet

    I used Cab skin pack in Blackberry wine I was making and it turned out real good. I added blackberries to a cab batch and it turned out good too.
